Grateful Dead

What do they believe? What do you think? Talk about religion as it exists today.

Oh, it's so nice to revisit 1972. While it's not my favorite version, this Jack Straw was the first I ever heard and it takes me back (to 1992!). "There ain't a place a man can hide, Shannon, will keep him from the sun."

And this is still my favorite Cumberland Blues (and as the Dead's lyricist Robert Hunter once said, "The best compliment I ever had on a lyric was from an old guy who'd worked at the Cumberland mine. He said, 'I wonder what the guy who wrote this song would've thought if he'd ever known something like the Grateful Dead was gonna do it' “).

I just wonder if you shouldn't feel less concerned about the deep unreal.

And while I'm here (again), I came across this video from 1989 the other day and I've never seen Jerry look so happy. I can see how this energy carried over to those Alpine Valley shows two weeks later (and Bobby's got his short shorts on). "Whistle through your teeth and spit 'cause it's alright." And as a commenter says, "No matter how bummed I get, this band picks me back up every time."

Update. I've never heard the studio version of Sugaree before, and it sounds nice. And if this thread isn't bumped up again this is a nice place to leave it. Thanks for listening, whoever you are!!!!
